    Author(s): Zhiming Fu, Yi Liu and Qiang ZhangZhiming Fu, Yi Liu and Qiang Zhang

    Pleurotus eryngii, commonly known as the king oyster mushroom, has been used extensively in North Africa, Europe and Asia. A great deal of work has been carried out on therapeutic potential of Pleurotus eryngii. The edible Fungi perform multiple bioactivities: anticancer, antiviral, antioxidant, antimicrobial, anti-leukaemia, hypolipidemic, immuno-modulating and estrogen-like activity. These bioactive properties depend on its bioactive compounds such as polysaccharides, eryngiolide A, ubiquinone-9, pentacyclic triterpenoid and so on. The present review focuses on the potential pharmacological activities and provides reference for the study of Pleurotus eryngii in the future. .. Read More»
